President Barron seems to found a way to vote 22 times.

Didn't know we had an offer from the Big 12

Major marketing "No Brainer" to support Clemson, Miami and Louiville to join along.

Or exit stage WEST!!


  


Someone should start packing now.  Remains to be seen who that might be...as they say, lead, follow, or get out of the way.

Just for the record, my vote wasn't so much in favor of the Big 12 per se, but in favor of GETTING OUT of the ACC.
5/14 1:15 PM | IP: Logged


Who is even voting to stay in the ACC, what are your reasons?




Im for going anywhere even independant

5/14 2:10 PM | IP: Logged

Similar to the way Cowherd phrased the whole 'Start Tebow' movement in Denver.




If you make your decisions based on what the fans want, you're going to end up sitting with them.

Savvys, I can think of about three sure "ACC at all costs" votes, and we know who they are!
5/14 3:46 PM | IP: Logged
besides officiating since we have been in the conference:

look at oregon, now back to fsu, now back to oregon, now back to fsu.

Money can make a big difference and we are going to have less and less of it in the ACC.

time to get out.

Lot's of fans want out.

Whatever is financially more beneficial for us and from the sounds of it the Big 12 is the way too go.  The ACC sucks.

It appears that the overwhelming majority of those Seminoles on this site disagree with Pres. Barron.
5/14 6:30 PM | IP: Logged
95% have spoken and want to leave the ACC


I would have no regrets.  


Like the BOT said...I'm a graduate and NEVER have I EVER mentioned that my degree was from an ACC school.


Academics have no bearing or "rub off" on FSU that I have noticed.


If this is just a tease, I'm going to be depressed.

5/14 6:41 PM | IP: Logged
Pretty loaded question. I'll wait until Big 12 actually offers.

The only conference that FSU should consider moving to "if offered" should be the SEC.


Reasons: SEC schools are nearby versus Big 12 and their TV contract offers the most $$$. Their schools travel well--- which is what we need to fill our stadiums in all the major sports. Dr. Barron's points about the Big 12 are valid. Unless we play TX,, OU & OK. State on a regular basis--- our fans will not be highly motivated with teams like Kansas, K-State and Iowa State. Perhaps, we're better off trying to nudge the ACC into bringing in (2) more schools hopefully with a focus towards upgrading "football". If that could be done in the next 2-3 years then the ACC would be in a good position to re-negotiate a modified (better) TV deal with ESPN.


ACC officials, have been put on notice---- let's see if they respond in the coming year by making overtures towards bringing in two schools with stronger "football" backgrounds.

The Big 12 is such a boring conference.  I was glad when Colorado left and I will be disappointed when/if FSU joins.  I am no fan of the ACC, I am less a fan of the Big 12.
5/14 7:00 PM | IP: Logged


Gotta love FSU fans....Want to go to the Big 12 to be Texas's b*tch for a couple extra million.  This concept might be tough for some to understand, but if you win and are a national contender year in and year out, you will increase your revenue.  But since we have lost to teams such as Wake and Virginia, far inferior teams, we havent become that national brand name team.  If we become the dominant team which we are supposed to be with the talent we have, we can easily surpass the money 3 million extra we would make in the big 12. 




The ACC is a conference in which we are the premier team in terms of football, why would u want to go to a conference where we would be 3rd or 4th recognized team. 

5/14 7:05 PM | IP: Logged

  but we need to jump ship on this crap hole of a conference soon, simply lets just  !
5/14 7:13 PM | IP: Logged
A move makes sense. Most of all FSU can develop it's own identity in a Big 12 division,and Tier 3 network - separate from Texas, UF and the basketball-focused ACC. FSU football currently has a great TV brand ( and ratings) now, this is a perfect time to set a new course.

Likewise  Such a poll makes little sense unless you have all the facts.   I assume that 93% would still be in favor of joining the Big 12 even if it meant FSU would lose money?   Not that this would be the case but knee jerk responses without facts are not rational or logical.

In response to one of the other threads, I e-mailed President Barron to push our divorce from the ACC.


I quickly received a response from him with detailed reasons why it's not as simple as hating the ACC.




I thought this was my personal response until I saw the Front page lead story on WarChant.  Same thing!!!




Oh wello, the bed bug letter!

Leave with due haste and never look back. F&$K the ACC. I have been screaming it for years. John Swofford is lazy, lacks vision and is a pathetic excuse for a leader.

There should be a poll only for those that went to Florida State and not the fans that only care about the football team.
I have 8 season tickets so don't judge me too quickly.

I posted this in another thread and I will post it again. I like to get kissed when I get screwed. The ACC ain't kissing, just screwing and the screwee is FSU in every way possible. They have done that from the first day we joined the conference up till and including now. They have done it in every way possible  on the athletic fields of endeavor and administratively.

Leave asap, do not pass go, do not collect $200, just get out. The disdain that this conference has shown FSU by it's ruling members and it's sorry commissioner is insulting. No way should we pass up a viable chance to gtho of this Mickey Mouse conference. We should never have joined it in the first place.

SEC is a no brainer. Would have to be a hell of an offer for big 12 since they are not within our region

Agreed...the only reason to stay in the ACC is if we cant get a better deal anywhere else.

I for one would love having the chance to attend "away" games in the big 12. and sharing in the opportunity of spreading the Nole fever across the nation!!  Perhaps, we would even be able to recruit a few of those "corn fed" offensive linemen they grow out there!!

SEC
5/15 5:19 PM | IP: Logged
The only place in the Big 12 that I would want to go to is Austin, and that is to go to SXSW. Ames? Do I really want to see where my bacon comes from. Do they even have an airport. Dallas? No thanks. Watch Big 12 officiating. You want to know why they score so much, they never call holding. Texas gets every call, except for the ones OU gets. They have crazy oil covered boosters. They cheat terrible. I hate the ACC and am fully convinced that if someone did some deep analysis they could prove cheating among officials. Good schools are leaving the Big 12 only a WVU would think that was a good move. I don't want to become some crazy athletic department run school. What do the athletes think? We would need our own airline. The schools of florida, alabama and georgia should form their own league. Florida, FSU, UM, USF, UCF UGA, GT, AU,UA, UAB. Throw in Clemson and USC, that makes 12. Now we have a florida-centric league.

We need to get like the hands on the clock! Whats that? and Move
5/15 8:38 PM | IP: Logged


I believe if we decide to leave the ACC, we should investigate the interests of both the Big 12 and the SEC. I would hate to go to the west when we could possibly have closer quality opponents to contend with. I am sure the SEC would not like the Big 12


more access to recruiting in our area.




 However, I would love to have the seminoles come to play in my state.

WAR Paint not trying to pick a fight but you gotta know we got to get out of the ACC.  In ten years FSU will be so far behind we will be like unto what we think is going to happen to miami.   Please dont hold attachment to the acc because the schedule favirs usmbecause of a weak conference.  Nat C,s with equal sharing and no money from ACC equals disaster as FU rakes in the dough.  Its math guy.
5/15 10:37 PM | IP: Logged


I agree with clearminded.  We should leave based solely on the foul treatment we've received in the past few years on the field.  They want us to leave.  They are just too pansy minded to come out and say it.  Swofford is a wuss!  They want to punish us if we leave by charging us 20 million dollars and they want to punish us for staying by screwing us on the field. 


When we are gone and the money fades for ACC football, they will regret what they have done.

Id take jumping to the Big 12 in a heartbeat!


The day when we can tell Ron Cherry, Jack Childress, Karl Hess, Rick Hartsell, and the rest of the knuckleheads they call officials in ALL sports where they can shove it will be a good one!

I say we move just so Greg can point out the punted ball on the ground, scoop it and return it for a TD with officials that have an FN clue. Don't get me started. MOVE ASAP.

Go Noles. Big 12....SEC

Wait on the SEC to offer an invitation.....I believe its closer than we think.
5/16 8:06 AM | IP: Logged
cut a deal with ND, Maryland, GT and FSU and go as a package deal to Big10.  B10 wants to get in south, this gives them entry to DC/Va market, Florida market and Atlanta.

moving from the ACC to B12 is stupid.

if we want to lay it all on the line, man up and hit a HR.  B12 aint a home run
